Francine D. on the Look, Feel, Perform Better Challenge
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been sharing past Look, Feel, Perform Better Challenge participants’ experiences to give you a better sense of what it’s all about and what kind of results you might be able to expect. Today we’re very happy to bring you the impressions of one of last year’s winners! Here’s how Francine D. responded to Coach Fox‘s one-year-later follow-up questions…
What was the most positive change you experienced during last years challenge?
The most positive change was my relationship to alcohol. I used to drink wine like a fish and never realized the degree to which it was affecting my performance, sleep, and body composition. I also think my relationship to food overall is now drastically different. I am now able to prioritize performance and general fitness over junk food cravings.
What was the biggest challenge to overcome, and how did you deal with it?
The biggest challenge was learning the difference between hunger and cravings. I followed the Level 2 Eater plan and meal timing to a tee in order to have a rational action plan for addressing stress cravings.
What has been the most lasting change from last year?
Weight loss and body composition transformation—22 lbs lost since the beginning of the Challenge and 16% body fat achieved (after a second cut this fall). I also moved from a daily drinker to person who has an occasional drink.
Will you be participating again this year?
Yep! I’m thinking about maintaining or doing a massing diet alongside a hypertrophy program.
